We are Chris and Amanda Wilson, and we are hoping to adopt a child! We’ve been married for eight years, and adoption has been a desire of ours since before we were dating. Through our travels, our faith, and witnessing others who have adopted, the Lord prepared our hearts for building our future family through adoption. We saw the great need there is for adoption and foster care, and God grew a strong desire within us to step into that need.
At the begining of 2019, after a lot of prayer and counsel, we began the domestic adoption process! We see adoption as a beautiful way to grow our family. We celebrate how God has led us so far, and we look forward to how He will bring this adoption to completion!
Adoption costs a lot of money. Originally, we needed to raise $50,000. This amount includes the birthmom’s medical expenses & other essential ways we want to care for her, legal fees, homestudy & agency fees, etc. After a year of hard work and fundraising efforts, we are half way to our goal! We still need $20,000 to complete our adoption and bring our future child home. We have been given a $4,000 matching grant from Orphan Care Alliance Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans. Money given through Lifesong will go towards this matching grant. Will you donate today and help bring a child home to their forever family?
